Hi, I'm Courtney, a mum of two and the creater behind Mikoo Kidz.
Mikoo Kidz came to life in September 2017 - while I was on maternity leave with my son, Cooper (the KOO in Mikoo).
My daughter Myah (the MI in Mikoo) has always been a lover of art and craft and we had spent our days colouring, painting and drawing. It was during this time that Myah began eating paints, crayons, the works - anything she could get her hands on.
I carefully began to question the ingredients used in commerical crayons and this is when our first attempt of making crayons began. It was after much research, we found that a lot of commercial crayons contain asbestos and almost all crayons contain paraffin (a by-product of petroleum) so we set out to create a safe, natural crayon. It was then that Mikoo Kidz began.
After awhile and attending quite a few markets with my husband, James, he decided that the wooden toys he had previously made for Myah and Cooper could also be apart of our journey to share and we introduced our line of natural wooden toys. I have a Bachelor of Psychology (Charles Sturt University) and am currently studying a Master of Child Play Therapy at Deakin University and it was after James began adding to his collection of wooden toys that I proposed to him the idea of creating natural toys to aid in engagement and stimulate children during imaginative and play-based learning. And now here we are, where we now create colour and fun for all of your little ones using only natural products to give you piece of mind while your children draw, colour and play.
Thank you for popping by and taking a look at our products and we hope you love them just as much as we do creating them.
